there current. another world cup favorite, germany, kick off campaign against portugal. the three-time winners have not won the world cup in 20 years, but the regulars having reached the semi final in the last three tournament's, their first assignment in salvador is a tough one, against the portuguese. >> the team to are most likely to compete for the title are, of course, all the strong teams, with their own individuality. portugal is now playing germany. that is the second in world rankings against the four-seam. i think that each game is very important for us. i repeat, if we defend well, if we use opportunities in our attacks, then i believe we have a very, very good chance to go very far in this tournament.
